Start of the tour is at the parking lot between the hamlet Winklen and Unterried. In countless hairpin bends leads the forest path (toboggan run) in the air. At the beginning you still have the opportunity to catch a glimpse of Längenfeld. Later, the tour runs through dense coniferous forest. If you're lucky, a squirrel crosses your path. After less than 4 kilometers you reach the Wurzbergalm. There you can fortify yourself in the warm room with delicious homemade specialties. Fast it goes with the sled back into the valley.
  • Toboggan rental for a fee at the cottageby
  • appointment transfer possible
